Product Information

Hand plucked leaves of organically grown henna from the verdant greens of Kerala is sun-dried on bamboo sheets and later powdered to make Mendhika, which can be mixed in different ways for enhancing hair texture and colour. Mendhika blends with your natural hair colour and tints it in different hues of red and brown; ranging from auburn to burgundy. Mendhika can also be combined with natural indigo powder to offer a wider range of natural hair colours that are in the brown-black spectrum. The intense conditioning of henna will improve the softness of your hair too. This pure chemical-free henna can also be safely used for creating exquisite mehndi tattoos on the body.

How to use

Hair Conditioning-Make a wet henna paste with curd and apply from root to tip wearing hand gloves. After an hour, rinse your hair till all traces of henna are removed. This makes the hair soft, healthy and shiny.
Hair Colouring-Make a thick paste by combining the natural henna powder with water in a non-metallic bowl. Make sure there are no lumps in the paste. For a darker colour, you could add ingredients like natural amla powder, apple cider vinegar, lemon juice, black tea, black coffee or yoghurt. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and store it under room temperature for 4-6 hours or more. The longer you keep it, the darker the colour will be. Divide your hair into small sections and apply the paste throughly from root to tip wearing hand gloves and leave on for at least an hour. Secure your hair into a bun and cover your head with a shower cap. After 1 to 2 hours, rinse the mixture off, using water only. Hair should be rinsed till all traces of henna are removed. Shampoo your hair the next day. The effect of henna colour on your hair will depend on your natural hair colour. If you have completely grey hair, your hair will turn into a coppery orange colour.
Mehndi Art/Body Tattoos-To create temporary mehndi tattoos anywhere on the body, make a wet paste using henna, black tea and sugar. Soak overnight in an iron container and apply the next day.
Note: Henna should be mixed and left overnight in an iron container for enhancing the colour of henna.
For Auburn colour: Using henna alone can result in an auburn or copper colour.
For Burgundy colour: Combine henna with beetroot juice, lemon juiceand water.
For Brown colour: Add coffee or tea powder to henna while soaking. You could also add indigo powder to wet henna paste just before applying to get a brown tone. Different proportions of henna and indigo can give you varying shades of brown. Indigo does not release dye the same way that henna does, so it must be mixed and used right away, or within 15-20 minutes.
For Black Colour: For a black tone, you can apply indigo paste after you have first done your henna treatment. Do not leave the indigo paste on your hair for more than an hour.
